Setting up camp in the NSA Gallery for a three-week period, artist/filmmaker Aryan Kaganof will be presenting a multimedia collaborative, interactive exhibition, consisting of film screenings, discussions, performances and ever changing digital artworks.
Kaganof will live (and be on display) in the NSA for the whole duration of the show with a digital editing suite, allowing the artist to process input by visitors to the gallery complex overnight. The results will be presented as printouts, screenings and projections, resulting in a constantly evolving exhibition.
Kaganof invited Durban based artist/DJ Helge Janssen, artist/filmmaker Catherine Henegan (currently based in Amsterdam) and performance artist Nicola Deane to join the fray. The results of the collaborations and individual works will be presented as part of the exhibition, and included in a programme of three evenings of presentations, music and performance.
Films from Kaganofs oeuvre will be screened continuously in the gallery for the duration of the exhibition, allowing visitors a unique opportunity to witness the work of this renowned filmmaker, including the South African premiere of WESTERN 4.33 (2002), winner of the first prize,12th African Film Festival, Milan.
